We are taking our boys 8&10 yo to Roatan, Honduras over the summer. We are staying at a resort that promises good drinking water even in the shower. Should we get any shots for them before leaving or a Rx to take with us in case of ailment?

Hi,

There are recommendations depending on where you are staying. At a resort you probably don't need anything more than what is routine but check out this web site to be sure.

They recommend anti-malaria meds. Can we call for a Rx on that?

I read an article at malariaworld.org (not kidding) that said Primaquine is best for short trips like ours (one week). But if you think something else is more appropriate for kiddos, that's fine.

Hi,

You can call in for that. Ask for Missy, she does all of the malaria prescriptions.
